PASSOPISCIARO, Contrada Guardiola (G) 2011

Guardiola is the largest of all Passopisciaro’s Crus and situated 800 meters above sea level on the foothills of Mt Etna. The 2011 is composed of 100% Nerello Mascalese and is a wine of wonderful elegance and purity, offering beautiful aromas of sweet red berries, spices, mineral, orange blossoms and smoke. The medium body shows terrific structure and balance, finishing up long and silky. These 2011s from Andrea Franchetti are among the most elegant wines I have ever seen from Sicily, and are sure to age gracefully. (Best 2014-2025) - May 2014 (JD)
